Wizarding World T-Shirt Contest
style=”text-align: left; font-family: Arial;”>You are the owner of the
struggling wizarding clothes shop, Bolts and Bobbins, trying to drum up
business. You hit upon the idea to get more kids into the shop (because
we all know that where the youngsters go so follow mommy and daddy’s
galleons!). You’ve decided to market a line of T-shirts for Hogwarts
students bearing slogans, quips, and phrases appealing to teenage
wizards and witches. For December’s contest, create an original design
for a T-shirt you think could be a best-seller. Winning entries will be
made available for our readers to download and transfer to their own

will receive a handcrafted wand donated by Wizard
Wood Wands (changes monthly) and 200 MyLeaky points. Second, third,

- Please refer to our FAQ if you are not sure of something.
you have any questions not answered on the FAQ, or would like to discuss this Contest, please
come to the Contest Corner Forum of The Leaky Lounge.
- Design a T-shirt (via computer or hand) to be
sold to teenage witches and wizards. Base your design on an originally
worded slogan, quip, or phrase. You may put a wizarding twist on an
existing joke or saying if the change gives the words a new meaning.
Please do not include quotes or illustrations from the HP books,
interviews, movies, official licensed products, or any such official
media, owing to copyright issues.
- Please remember this contest
is for teenage witches and wizards and not for us as readers and fans so
quips like “I’ve got a SIRIUS obsession” would not work for this
contest since Sirius is considered a criminal in the wizarding world.
design may be for the front or back of the shirt, or both, and may
include an illustration. An illustration or fancy design is not required
since simplicity works just as well to showcase the slogan.
create a full-scale illustration of your design which can be copied for
screening onto a t-shirt. Create a separate illustration showing the
format and placement of the slogans on the shirt (front and back if
needed). You may indicate the colors you recommend for both the shirt
and the printing if you feel they are important to the overall effect.
submit your entry in .jpg, .png, or .gif format. You may submit two
files (one for the full scale design and the other for the format
(front/back in one file)). File sizes no larger than 2 MB, please.
include the name you would like to have appear with your slogan (real
name, Leaky Lounge, MyLeaky, etc).
